Former Dolphins player alleges Nick Saban cut him for visiting his dying dad (Shutdown Corner)

Nick Saban’s relatively brief time as head coach of the Miami Dolphins is not looked upon fondly by most fans of the team. According to receiver P.K. Sam, a journeyman who spent time with five NFL teams as well as two CFL clubs, Saban cut him after he left the team briefly to see his dying father. Sam was part of Miami’s practice squad at the time, and the team brought him back in 2007.
